If you’re inspired by the sweeping views of the Boston Public Garden from the windows of the Hampshire House, another option would be to create a palette of greens, pinks, oranges, yellows, and other beautiful floral tones.

You’ll also want to include physical decorations that convey your theme to guests. Fine linens and lush floral arrangements will also add gorgeous textures to your décor design. Additionally, consider the Hampshire House’s turn-of-the-century details, vintage items add a chic touch to your event.
